As part of this special themed round, all seven iiNet NBL Championship home games for Round 21 will help support Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation.
Players in Round 21 games will wear rainbow shoelaces and sell rainbow merchandise at venues to help raise money and awareness for the cause. It is envisaged that the referee’s will also wear Zaidee’s Rainbow Wristpockets during the three televised matches.
Chief Executive Officer of Zaidee’s Rainbow Foundation, Allan Turner, said the NBL’s support was invaluable.
“We are so proud to be the chosen charity of the NBL’s inaugural community round. The exposure that organ and tissue donation will receive through this wonderful initiative from the NBL cannot be underestimated, and it is particularly pertinent given that it coincides with DonateLife week. This is another great leap forward for Zaidee’s, and one that we hope will open more doors for us across Australia. If this round helps to save the life of just one person by inspiring discussion amongst the community, then it is an outstanding success as far are we are concerned.”
